Day 179: Woodcraft show
Today was the big event at Woodcraft in Chandler. The Arizona Woodturners Association was on hand with a lathe, a number of gouges, and some wood to demonstrate with. They also had contests going that were judged by 3 professional woodworkers; Scott Phillips of the PBS TV Program "The American Woodshop", Marc Spagnulo of "The Wood Whisperer", and David Steston - one of the founders of the Caricature Carvers of America. I entered 4 piece into the turning category and was pleased to win 3rd place with the set of 3 nested bowls shown here. They're Eucalyptus Burl with coffee grounds and epoxy for filler. This set of 3 bowls was also shown at the Chandler Center for the Arts last year.
Lots of fun with old friends, new friends, and helping spread the art and craft of woodturning.
